FRIDAY FOLDER edgewood campus october 29

Videos of the Week: ECPA Dunk Day - Mr. Powell Gets Dunked

First Grade Presentation
Mr. Leathem Introduces the First Graders to England
The first graders were presented with a slide show of fascinating pictures, maps, and vocabulary of England from Liam's dad. Mr. Leathem kept the students engaged not only with his slide presentation but also with his queried prompts to elicit answers! The first graders found the variance in vocabulary words quite fascinating, as Mr. Leathem chose words of interest for our young students.  Trainers, trolleys, and crisps may be words coming home from your child. Of course, there is nothing greater than treats or, "sweets," as they are known in England. We had a wonderful sampling of these delicious sweets brought straight from England for our enjoyment.

3rd Grade Presentation
We had the privilege of hosting an Australian teacher, Ms. Deidre, who resides in England to come to our classroom and speak about the land down under.  Students learned about the harsh climate of Australia and how growing up in Adelaide was hot and dry.  She also spoke on the native Australian animals such as the kangaroo, the platypus, the funnel spider, as well as the wombat.  She even gave our class a book!  The book is called Wombat Walkabout which is about a little wombat from Australia who loves to "dig and think."  On top of that, she brought in some typically Aussie food for us to sample.  Some liked the Vegemite, while most stuck with the yummy cookies. Mrs. Lottes' students walked away with a better understanding of the huge island (as they called it) of Australia.
Police Officer visits 1st Grade
On Monday, Oct. 25th, as a closure to the first grade studies about Community Helpers, they received a visit from Officer Bradbury of the Costa Mesa Police Department.  The first graders were able to learn about being a police officer and what it takes to be a wonderful contributor to all communities.  Their visit wouldn't have been complete without a trip outside to explore the inside of Officer Bradbury's police car!  Thank you, Officer Bradbury (and Miss Kim for sharing your sister with us)!
